    El propósito de este estudio es analizar el crecimiento y desarrollo de la literatura académica sobre la evaluación de los sistemas e-learning. La bibliografía publicada en 18 de las principales revistas de la base de datos ISI Web of Knowledge fue obtenida, de manera directa, a través de las palabras clave: ¿model¿, ¿evaluation¿, ¿e-learning system¿, con sus respectivos sinónimos. La información como autor, título, subtítulo, fuente, citas, etc., se registró para su análisis e interpretación. El estudio encontró 127 artículos en esta temática, publicados en el período 2008-2012. Los datos revelan que el 2012 fue el año más productivo, con 33 artículos. La revista más productiva es Computers & Education, con 15 artículos; se la puede considerar como una revista básica de consulta. Se encontró que Peter Shea y Temi Bidjerano, ambos de Estados Unidos, son los autores más prolíficos, habiendo realizado trabajos conjuntos. Podría ser una limitante del estudio que la información tomada fue restringida a un período de cinco años, tiempo que de manera general se acepta, en relación a la antigüedad de la producción bibliográfica. El documento proporciona información confiable y auténtica sobre el tema y es el primer estudio de este tipo.

    This paper examines the relationship between academic publications and patents. The empirical application considers the Spanish public higher education system during 2006-2010. First, we use regression models to investigate those factors that act as potential drivers when considering papers and patents individually. Second, we run a cluster analysis in order to test whether Spanish universities follow different patterns in the way they align their resources in regard to research objectives. The overarching conclusion is that cross-fertilization relationships between academic research and its commercialization are found. There are, however, important differences on how universities are disseminating these research results when we in-depth in the analysis of the resources and capabilities universities possess. Results also stress the need to look at contextual and normative factors.

    En la presente tesis doctoral, se presenta una investigación que tiene como propósito conocer los factores determinantes que influyen en la decisión de evaluar la formación en las grandes empresas peruanas. En primer lugar, se examinaron los conceptos relacionados con la evaluación de la formación y los modelos propuestos por los autores, desarrollados en los últimos 50 años. En este sentido, se señala que, a pesar de que la formación es un aspecto importante que produce efectos positivos en las organizaciones, escasamente se evalúa y se conoce el impacto en los resultados. La investigación ha permitido precisar el contexto en que los programas de formación son impartidos en las grandes empresas peruanas. Asimismo, se plantea un enfoque integral sobre los principales motivos e impedimentos que tienen los directivos de las empresas para evaluar las acciones formativas impartidas al personal, y, por otro lado, se espera que sea un punto de partida para futuras líneas de investigación

    This thesis presents a research which objective is to examine the key factors that influence training and development of personnel in large Peruvian enterprises. A key motivation behind developing this thesis is to make a systematic research of academic character in relation to aspects of personnel training, in particular focusing on the evaluation phase, which is the phase that has been the least studied and least applied in enterprises. Knowledge that has come from the academic research on evaluation of personnel training is still not much known among large Peruvian enterprises and the studies that exist neither presents practical techniques on how to implement and execute this knowledge. This study has been developed with large Peruvian enterprises in mind, which, due to technological changes and the dynamics in the markets where they operate, need to have personnel that participate in training programs at a continuous basis. This is the only way the enterprises can respond to the challenges facing them. Also, it should be mentioned that these enterprises have the financial strength to invest in training programs for their personnel. In the case of large Peruvian enterprises, one can observe the importance that management includes in their strategy the relevance of developing the personnel and the organization. However, they are aware that these programs are seldom evaluated despite of that it is important to know the impact they have on learning and on the growth of the enterprise and in generating sustainable competitive advantages. The justification of this research is the necessity of large Peruvian enterprises to remain competitive and that they can respond to the demands from a globalized marketplace. Management of these enterprises consider the training programs as an important strategy, and the evaluation of these programs as a key indicator for documenting the impact on the enterprise¿s results. First, the concepts related to evaluation of personnel training are examined in conjunction with the models that have been proposed during the last 50 years. The research has helped to clarify the context in which these programs are executed in large Peruvian enterprises. The sample size used in this study consists of 89 large enterpresies in different economic sectors in Peru. The study contributes with important information that management in these large organizations should take into account in relation to evaluating the training programs and to know the impacts of these on the performance of the organization. Also, the study presents an integral overview of the chief motivations and impediments that management have when evaluating the different actions in relation to training of personnel. Moreover, this study is expected to be a point of departure for future research within this field. It is in this respect that the results from this research contributes to establish what are the determining factors that influence the decision to evaluate training programs in large Peruvian enterprises, a subject that has received very little dissemination.

    Purpose – This study conceptualises the role of Knowledge Transfer Offices (KTOs) as Knowledge Brokers (KBs) and identifies which factors are most significantly related with their performance for supporting Public-private Research Organizations (PROs), testing our hypothesis for the Spanish case. Design/methodology/approach – An empirical analysis is conducted based on data from RedOTRI 2008 annual report about 63 Spanish KTOs. A multiple lineal regression model is carried on each of the selected variables representative of KTOs’ performance (number of priority patents, revenues from industry collaboration and number of spin-offs) in order to establish possible relationships with some factors related to the knowledge process that characterize KTOs’ activity. Findings – A theoretical framework conceptualizing the KTOs’ role as knowledge brokers is suggested. Factors positively influencing KTOs’ performance are PRO’s total annual expenses, the type of PRO, the KTO age, the existence of a science park, the explicit regulation of intellectual property rights, the number of specialized full-time staff of the KTO and the availability of a patent stock. Practical implications – The identification of those critical factors for the day-to-day operation of Spanish KTOs in their different ways of transferring knowledge, drawing managerial and organisational practices that may improve their performance. Originality/value – This paper provides two original contributions for literature on knowledge transfer: a theoretical framework for the conceptualisation of KTOs as KBs, and the categorisation and further analysis of factors closely related to the performance of KTOs. A set of managerial implications for a better improvement of such institutions is presented.

    La saturación de los medios de comunicación y el avance de las nuevas tecnologías de la información y de la comunicación han consolidado Internet como un nuevo canal comercial y de marketing. En este contexto surgen nuevas estrategias de promoción en Internet que facilitan a empresas y organizaciones obtener un buen posicionamiento en los buscadores e incrementar el tráfico en su página web. Los objetivos de este artículo son: 1) contextualizar el marketing basado en buscadores (SEM) y en especial las acciones o estrategias de optimización del posicionamiento (SEO); 2) identificar y clasificar las acciones SEO que las empresas realizan o podrían realizar para mejorar su posicionamiento, y 3) realizar una observación empírica, centrada en las librerías de ámbito español (venta de libros), que permita cuantificar el grado de utilización de acciones SEO y su efectividad según el posicionamiento observado en las páginas de resultados de los buscadores. Se analizan los resultados obtenidos, las limitaciones del estudio y se comentan futuras líneas de investigación.

    The Internet has consolidated as a new commercial and marketing channel due to the advance of Information and Communication Technologies and the saturation of conventional media channels. In this context, firms are doing specific (for the Internet channel) promotion strategies to improve its placement on search engines results pages and to increase its website traffic. The objectives of this article are: 1) to provide a context for the Search Engine Marketing (SEM), putting special attention on those actions to optimize the placement in search engines (SEO); 2) to identify and classify what SEO actions firms adopt or could adopt to improve its placement on search engines; and 3) to make an empirical study (centered on Spanish book trades) to quantify how much firms are adopting SEO actions and its effectiveness according to the placement observed in search engines result pages. The results are analyzed, the limitations are discussed and new lines for research are commented.

    The main objective of this paper is to define and evaluate the professional abilities of an engineer who works as an IT professional in Spain, primarily telecommunications engineers and computer scientists. Their occupational profiles will provide us with a useful tool for defining and conceptualizing curriculum plans for new qualifications, which the EU Higher Education Area project will require in 2010. European universities, institutes of higher education, and learning centers are currently drawing up such proposals. This article presents a first attempt at defining the professional characteristics-in terms of competence and aptitude-that an IT professional should possess. It focuses more on interpersonal skills and abilities than to knowledge and technical expertise.

    La consolidación del fenómeno Internet ha supuesto la creación de mercados virtuales que compiten con los mercados tradicionales. Según la teoría económica clásica, los mercados minorista en Internet deberían presentar una mayor eficiencia de mercado, dado que para el consumidor suponen bajos costes de búsqueda de información relativa al precio y las características del producto, y esto supone una aproximación al modelo de competencia perfecta. Mayor eficiencia de mercado debería implicar la existencia de precios más bajos, menores diferencias entre el precio menor y mayor de un producto al considerar los distintos comercios, y una variabilidad de precios caracterizada por un mayor número de cambios de menor magnitud.Esta tesis demuestra empíricamente, en el caso concreto del mercado minorista de venta de CDs de música, si el canal Internet presenta una mayor eficiencia de mercado que el Convencional. La medición de eficiencia se basa en los indicadores: Nivel, Dispersión y Variabilidad de precios. Las hipótesis de investigación se formulan según dichos indicadores y en relación a dos tipologías de discos: los Actuales y los Intemporales. El análisis se realiza según Precios Tienda y Precios Finales, siendo éstos últimos los Precios Tienda más los Costes de Envío, en el caso de compras en Internet, y los Precios Tienda más los Costes de Adquisición, en el caso de compras en el canal Convencional. Se consideran dos escenarios de Costes de Envío, uno de urgencia y otro de normalidad.El análisis empírico se basa en los precios captados durante 6 semanas (abril-mayo del 2004) Cada semana se captó el precio de 20 discos (10 Actuales y 10 Intemporales) en 8 comercios del mercado Internet y en otros 8 del Convencional, obteniéndose en total, 1603 precios. El ámbito geográfico fijado en relación a los comercios del canal Convencional fue el de Barcelona ciudad.De las conclusiones sobre Precios Tienda destacar que el canal Convencional se configura como un mercado igual o más eficiente que Internet. Sorprendentemente, se demuestra un precio mayor en los comercios Internet, igual dispersión, y los precios, aunque cambian más veces en Internet, lo hacen con mayor magnitud. Estos resultados contradicen las hipótesis teóricas y se interpretan como una falta de madurez de Internet en este mercado, que diversos factores permiten explicar. Por otra parte, se concluye diferente en el mercado de discos Actuales que en el de discos Intemporales, puesto que para los actuales se constata que Internet es tan eficiente como el canal Convencional.Respecto a Precios Finales, los resultados demuestran una mayor eficiencia del canal Convencional respecto a Internet, especialmente en el escenario de urgencia. En líneas generales, la dispersión es igual o mayor en Internet, y la variabilidad presenta mayores magnitudes de cambio. Los Costes de Adquisición que deben asumirse para demostrar precios más bajos en Internet son muy altos, siendo el mínimo estimado en el mejor de los casos, próximo a 6 euros.Además de la inmadurez del canal, destacar el papel que juegan los Costes de Envío en pro de reducir la eficiencia de Internet. Éstos presentan una alta dispersión, más extrema en el escenario de urgencia. Se sospecha que los comerciantes estén aumentándolos artificialmente, lo cual es compatible con una falta de transparencia informativa sobre este aspecto. Se concluye que la evolución de las políticas comerciales relativas a los costes de envío, así como, la evolución del sector logístico, serán variables relevantes en relación a la eficiencia de los mercados Internet.Finalmente, los sorpresivos resultados en base a Precios Tienda y la valoración de otros aspectos relacionados con una concepción más amplia de eficiencia, aconsejan no extrapolar los resultados a otros mercados.

    The consolidation of Internet has supposed the creation of virtual markets that compete with the traditional ones. According to the classic economic theory, the Internet retailers markets should have a better market efficiency (because the consumer has lower costs in searching for the prices and product characteristics) and this supposes an approach to the model of perfect competition. Better market efficiency means the existence of lower prices, smaller differences among the lowest and highest price of a product (when you consider different stores of the market), and a variability of prices characterized by a bigger number of changes and a smaller magnitude of changes. This thesis analyze, in the case of music CDs market retailer, if Internet channel shows a better market efficiency compared with the Conventional market. The measure of efficiency is based on the following indicators: level, dispersion and variability of prices. The investigation hypothesis are formulated through these indicators, and taken into account two categories of disks: Current Disks and Forever Disks. The analysis is carried out according to Store Prices and Final Prices. The Final prices are Store Prices plus the Shipment Costs, when it is purchased in Internet, and the Store Prices plus Acquisition Costs, when it is purchased in Conventional channel. Two scenarios of Shipment Costs are considered, the one of urgency and other one less urgent. In the empirical analysis, 1603 prices were obtained during 6 weeks (in April-May 2004). The price of 20 disks (10 Current Disk and 10 Forever Disk) was observed each week, and these prices were taken from 8 stores of Internet market and 8 stores of Conventional market. Barcelona city was fixed as the geographical environment where the Conventional market was studied. In the case of Store Prices the most important conclusion was that Conventional channel is: or as efficient as the internet market, or even more efficient. Surprisingly in Internet market, it has been found higher prices, same dispersion, more number of prices changes and higher magnitude of its prices changes. In general, these results are opposite to the theoretical hypothesis, and they demonstrate that Internet market is immature, according to several factors. Considering Final Prices, the results show a better efficiency in Conventional channel comparing to Internet channel, especially in the urgency scenario. The dispersion is the same or even bigger in Internet, and the variability shows major magnitudes of price changes. The Acquisition Cost (to buy in the Conventional market) that should be assumed to prove lower prices in Internet are very high, being the minimum estimated in the best of the cases, next to 6 euros. Besides the immaturity of the Internet channel, the Shipment Costs are a key factor to understand Internet as an inefficient market. These costs show a big dispersion, especially in urgent shipping. It seems that the stores are increasing them artificially and that there is a lack of information regarding shipment cost. Consequently, the logistics sector evolution will be very important to make or not a major efficiency in Internet markets. Finally, the surprising results based on Store Prices and the appreciation of other aspects related with the sector characteristics and a wider conception of the efficiency, it dissuades to extrapolate the results to other markets or sectors.
